  4. ♫ My, how time flies ♫
  5. ♫ And I’m trying to tie down my time ♫
  6. ♫ From flying away away away hmmm ♫
  7. ♫ Well you could find me permanently entertaining ♫
  8. ♫ Running round butt naked when it was raining ♫
  9. ♫ And staining my kneecaps with blood and tree sap ♫
  10. ♫ Man, I could stay in those days ♫
  11. ♫ Making and creating anything of the sort ♫
  12. ♫ But I didn’t follow the other kid
    cookie cutting a tree fort ♫
  13. ♫ But I made a teepee ♫
  14. ♫ And my father helped me ♫
  15. ♫ My, how time flies ♫
  16. ♫ And I’m trying to tie down my time from flying ♫
  17. ♫ away my my my many memories have gone by ♫
  18. ♫ And I’m catching quite a supply of love in my life ♫
  19. ♫ Like it was yesterday I was nearly half my size ♫
  20. ♫ Pounding nails, making potions with Pa ♫
  21. ♫ And Clyde would come with me outside ♫
  22. ♫ While Pa sat in his chair ♫
  23. ♫ And I wished to the stars
    that he would stay there ♫
  24. ♫ I always loved to be sick over at my grandmas ♫
  25. ♫ Wandering out to the alleyway wearing only pajamas♫
  26. ♫ And she, she told me don’t go touching the whiskey ♫
  27. ♫ So I turned rocks into my friends ♫
  28. ♫ I better leave it all, playing in water for hours ♫
  29. ♫ Then rinsing off, and bearing it all
    outside in the shower ♫
  30. ♫ I’d be alone on a stone in the creek ♫
  31. ♫ And I was told to be a man and
    a hook's making me weak ♫
  32. ♫ What a treat it was, that Damn Candy Store ♫
  33. ♫ Gave me a sweet tooth and an excuse ♫
  34. ♫ Couldn’t get away with that word before ♫
  35. ♫ And the candy man just gave me more ♫
  36. ♫ My how time flies ♫
  37. ♫ And I’m trying to tie down my time ♫
  38. ♫ From flying away ♫
  39. ♫ My my my many memories have gone by ♫
  40. ♫ And I’m catching quite a supply
    of love in my life yeah ♫
  41. ♫ My how time flies ♫
  42. ♫ And I’m trying to tie down my time ♫
  43. ♫ And my time is up ♫
